HBO digitally removes Starbucks cup from latest 'Game of Thrones'

HBO digitally removes Starbucks cup from latest 'Game of Thrones'

Game of Thrones Season 8 seems to be getting a lukewarm response as of now.

The first teaser trailer for the next episode of Games of Thrones sees Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and forces loyal to Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen arrive at King's Landing, with carnage nearly certain to follow. As Variety noted, Jaime Lannister was pictured holding what appears to be a coffee cup in a behind-the-scenes clip from season 4, but that never made it into the final cut.

The makers have edited out the modern coffee cup from HBO Now and HBO GO edition of the episode. "He's the only one who disappeared, the only one who drove herds and took them all like roasted sheep".

So, while the mentions and activity for Starbucks as a result of an errant coffee cup on the set of a major TV show may create some buzz, it apparently doesn't beat out a little poop in some iced coffee.

Following the premiere of episode 3, viewers complained that "The Long Night" episode was too dark for proper viewing, and cinematographer Fabian Wagner defended the aesthetic.

We're now in the dreaded lull between Game of Thrones episodes, the worst part of the week. The shorter "Inside the Episode" and more substantive "Game Revealed" videos pull double duty as both in-depth peeks into the production process fans have craved and a celebration of all the people behind the camera who make the magic happen.

HBO has rushed to resolve its Game of Thrones coffee snafu.

Executive Producer Bernie Caulfield explained the mistake on the All Of It podcast, saying, "I can't believe [it]!" She also joked that Westeros was the first place to have Starbucks, calling it a "little-known fact". They tweeted as, "TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink".

As such, the ratings for Sunday's episode The Last of the Starks did drop a bit from The Long Night, the preceding episode focused on the battle for Winterfell against the army of the dead. One person said: "My favourite show in the entire world forgot a Starbucks coffee cup on the table while filming".

The cup is now gone when streaming Game of Thrones on HBO Now and HBO Go.
